All peppers need three things:
- Full sun
- Good Soil
Full sunlight – Most pepper plants thrive in full
sunlight. But remember, they still need protection from scorching caused by evaporation during hot or dry periods.
Soil That Drains Well – As with most garden vegetables, soaking wet roots leads to disease and rot. Use a loose, loamy soil that drains excess moisture away from the roots.
Regular Moisture – Pepper Plants suck up a lot of water, and need to be watered every 3 days or so. Use a good organic mulch to maintain moisture levels during hot or dry periods.
